                                  June 2020 Enrichment Activity.

    Create a collage with labels of acids and bases found in your home. An easy way to identify them would be to look at the active ingredients found in it .




    An acid is a chemical species that donates protons or hydrogen ions and/or accepts electrons. Inorganic acid has the formula starting with H

    Eg HCl -  hydrochloric acid

    Organic acid ends with COOH

    Eg. C2H4COOH ethanoic acid



    a base is a chemical species that donates electrons, accepts protons, or releases hydroxide (OH-) ions in aqueous solution

    NaOH-  sodium hydroxide


    You can also use their characteristics to determine if it is a base.
